Tasting Notes

Nose

Stone fruit-tastic. Fresh and grilled peaches tossed with toasted hazelnuts, walnuts and a honey-mustard dressing.

Palate

A blanket of creamy vanilla lies atop this, before the Dr Jekyll character bursts through. Funky green flavours, peach, orange zest, salty and bitter blue cheese and walnut.

Finish

Soft-serve vanilla ice-cream.

Comment

Interestingly, rather than dominate and deaden the whisky, the vanilla adds a creaminess to the mouthfeel that really benefits those other zanier flavours.
